The 2nd Australasian FASD Conference is fast approaching, with the theme FASD Our Science, Our Stories. This year the conference will be held in Perth on the 21st and 22nd of November. The conference theme reflects the strong partnerships that exist between researchers, practitioners and families in this field. For more information about the conference click here.
An announcement has been made that, to broaden participation at the conference a limited number of Travel Grants will be awarded to subsidise the cost of conference attendance. Recipients of the travel subsidies must be prepared to attend the full 2 days of the conference, be available to meet the sponsor and have photos taken for later inclusion in media and promotion by both FASD Research Australia Centre of Research Excellence and the sponsor, and provide feedback to the Organising Committee following the conference.
Travel Grants can only be used to cover registration, travel and accommodation costs for the FASD 2018 Conference. The amount of the travel grant will be determined by the applicant’s place of residence (information available on the application form).
There are three types of travel grants available:
- Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
- Parent / Carer
